In this paper, we present the case of a future school in Singapore to illustrate the importance of designing learning spaces conducive to mobile CSCL practices from pedagogical design perspectives. Core design considerations are (a) to design activity or task types that lead to collaborative meaning-making discourse and experiences, (b) to promote intentional learning experiences across classroom and outdoor settings, and (c) to promote interdisciplinary thinking and discourse through the design of learning tasks that integrate concepts and skills in multiple subject areas. We also discuss the possibilities and challenges arising from the experiences of studying the design and enactment of mobile CSCL practices in a future school context. Challenges and tensions in our research trajectory include the enculturation process of collaboration, the appropriation of technological platforms, and the conflicts in assessment methods and designed learning experiences.
This paper was presented at the 20th International Conference on Computers in Education, held in Singapore from 16-30 Nov 2012
